Keke Palmer and her fellow cast mates participated in the “Scream Queens” panel this week at the Fox Summer TCA Tour held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Thursday, Aug. 6, 2015, in Beverly Hills, California. The cast spilled more details about the upcoming show as well as what it is like being on set with one another. By all accounts funny woman Niecy Nash enjoys improvisation getting laughs from one and all.
Nevertheless, the cast says beyond improv Scream Queens is just hilarious all on its own. Even though the show has a horror theme there is still plenty of comedy to go around. Scream Queens is written by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan. Ryan, Brad and Ian has remained silent on the fates of each cast member. As of yet the writers have not told the cast who the killer is or if their characters will survive. Brad Falchuk explained why it is best that the cast remain clueless. Falchuk mentioned,
“When you’re making a horror show, you need that sense of fear and urgency in the characters… They don’t know if this is the last time they’re gonna see the other person. They don’t know if they’re the killer. … If the actors know it tips it a little bit.”
The writers seem firm in wanting to play off the real emotions of the characters so we will all just have to wait and see who makes it out okay, if any. Congrats to Niecy as well as Keke on their new show and wish them continued success in their careers. Will you be tuning in when Scream Queens premieres?
